Don't Wait 9 yrs for Persimmons

Pick as soon as, your 1st year.

All Persimmon Trees are NOT created equal. Many nurseries grow persimmons from seed. These trees will look good, but will take 6-9 years to start fruiting. Even worse, they will likely cross-pollinate with other varieties, giving you a "Mutt", not a true Fuyu. So their customers can wait up to 9 years to discover they have bad tasting fruit.

We take cuttings from a Fuyu mother tree, proven to make great tasting fruit. We graft that on to a hardy root stock. The result: you get a tree that thinks it's mature and will start producing almost immediately. You're also ensured that you'll get great tasting fruit just like the mother tree.

Our grafting process has been proven for hundreds of years. It's all natural, non-GMO and is used for most commercial persimmon orchards. It is difficult and time consuming to graft persimmons, which is why many nurseries don't do it. But the difference for you is huge.

Your Fuyu persimmons are sweet and non-astringent. So you don't have to set them out for weeks, waiting for them to ripen. You can eat them right off the tree, like a sweet apple. Fuyu is the most popular persimmon in the world, accounting for 80% of the market.

A mature Persimmon tree can produce over 300 lbs of fruit. Your Persimmons will typically start to ripen in September and can stay on the tree through the end of the year. Fuyu can then store for months It's a favorite of many "Preppers".

This is about the easiest fruit tree you can plant. Fast growing. Naturally pest and disease resistant. Tolerates a wide variety of soils and climates. Drought tolerant, once established. In fact it has a long tap root that searches out its own water source. Basically you just plant, then pick.

Your tree is self-pollinating, which means it can fruit all by itself. However, it will produce more fruit with a second Fuyu to cross-pollinate with. Some of our customers, with small yards, will plant two trees in the same hole. This gives them cross-pollination and a large amount of fruit from a small space.

Some nurseries advertise a tall height, then chop 1/3rd off. This reduces their shipping cost, but leaves you with a stick that is shorter than you paid for. We prune your tree throughout its life... not just before shipping. This gives you more branches lower on the tree. Resulting in: Quicker production...More fruit at a safe picking height... and more fruit over the life of your tree.

Start saving thousands of dollars and enjoying a lifetime of sweet delicious fruit. Order your persimmon trees today, while they're still available.

Amazing tree
My grandfather had a Japanese persimmon when I was young and I still remember its remakable fruit. So I ordered the Fuyu Persimmon from Fast Growing Trees and it has been amazing. The tree arrived here in Houston, in the usual excellent condintion from Fast Growing Trees. I planted it about three months ago, i.e. February, and now, the first of May, the tree is not only growing without any planting shock but has at least a half dozen fuit growing on the tree. I am delighted with this purchase and highly recommend the Fuyu Persimmon from Fast Growing Trees.

Planted my persimmons
Bought and planted 5 fuyu persimmon trees last fall. They went dormant, lost all their leaves, and I thought it was all over. Wrong. Spring came along and they exploded with leaves and height! They have all grown over a foot since planting, and some even had fruit (which we removed). They look great so far and I'm looking forward to what my deer think of them in a year or two. Not sure what my zone number is, but we are in the eastern panhandle of Florida. Madison County.

the price is for a bearing status but they are too young
Two trees came in a good shape. I watered them & let them rest for 3 days. I paid that much hoping they were a bearing size but again they look too young to fruit. So far, they look unhappy & no shooting yet. It's been for about 3 weeks since then.

Future Persimmon
I am so excited with my Persimmon tree! I have already prepared the ground that I was gonna put it in. It looked good and healthy in its neat packaging, I found 11 baby Persimmon inside that I assume fell off the branches so I am hoping it will bear fruit next year. Summer has been hot and dry so I have been watering it religiously! I have a new sprig on one branch and hoping to see more before winter! Persimmon is one of my Mom's and my favorite fruit. Hope to be tasting it next year! Thanks!

Slow Growth rate
Shipping time and delivery OK. Plant left in orig pot indoors (atrium) for two weeks to acclimate, then transplanted to larger pot. (Received in early part of June). Plant has six nearly vertical branches, 12 to 18 in tall, and looks healthy. In early July center (tallest) branch started to grow at top resulting in four very small leaves by mid July. Since then, no visible activity. all other branches just seems dormant from the start to now with warmth and sun. . Anything wrong?

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Fuyu Persimmon Tree

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Fuyu Persimmon Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Fuyu Persimmon Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Fuyu Persimmon Tree again after the transplant is complete.

I live in Connecticut, is it too late to plant Fuyu Persimmon tree on the ground in late June or begiining of July? Should I leave it in a pot and plant it next Spring?
Joyce80 on Jun 21, 2014
Best Answer: I live in Seattle, WA, and I planted my tree in late summer, less than a year ago. It wintered well (we have mild winters here), and leafed out in the spring with new growth and actually has five or six fruits forming at this time. I have an older Ffuyu tree that works well in this climate while native persimmon never bears fruit. Bottom line: My experience says plant it now, but your climate is not the same as mine.

When is the best time to plant them in Rhode Island? Since they are not a native species, are there any diseases, insects or pests that will bother them?
A shopper on Jun 24, 2014
Best Answer: It is best to plant them in the early Spring or early fall. Unless you aren't experiencing scorching summer heat, then you can plant it now. They're pretty pest and disease resistant. Any organic pesticide will knock out threats and your tree won't develop a fungus unless it receives too much water.

I do not particularly know what type of soil or pH level they best grow in, but I can tell you that my tree and the neighbor's next door are thriving well here in Douglasville, GA. If you can google the type and pH of the soil in Douglasville, GA, that will lead you to the answer.

Best Answer: I'm not sure, but I planted mine in early October on Long Island - about a month before the first hard frost - and it is doing very well! I would guess in VA you have a broader window of opportunity for planting. In the summer you would want to be more careful about giving it lots of water. Best of luck!

Our wild persimmon trees in Mississippi are usually finished fruiting by the beginning of October if they fruit at all. Do you think the deer and wildlife will prefer these persimmons as to wild persimmons and will it continue to produce into the later part of the fall?

Best Answer: This is the third year that I have Fuyu. Last year it had fruits but the fruits disappeared before it matured. I don't know if it was eaten by deer or other animals. The leaves were not bothered by the deer. There are wild persimmons in our area that had good fruits last year.
